    you can find a free service manual here to download, but your bike is a V twin, they all make weird noises. you would be horrified if you could completely silence the exhaust noise.

    Are you asking for general tips on how to figure out where a tapping sound is coming from or are you asking specifically what that sound is on YOUR bike?

2004 kawasaki klx125l, Need some pointers and tips, havnt owned a little klx like this before, any help will be appreciated greatly!!!, thanks

Hi, Smackskatebo read my lips don't screw around with oil you know nothing about Kawasaki recommends the best oil for your bike end of story if you are going to listen to anyone listen to the technicians who work on Kawasaki dirt bikes no one else knows the product better would you go to a motorcycle store to buy oil for your car? Your owners manual will tell you exactly what oil to put in your gearbox. For this scenario, you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Kawasaki, despair not, for a mere $10 you can download another one. For more information about your issue and valuable "FREE" downloads that you will need please click on the blue links below. Good luck and have a wonderful day.

My 2000 r1 wont start, light an everything come on,press the button an the starter is all i hear. from timt to time the bike trys to start, but it just doesnt. bought the bike from the previous owner who...

If the bike had been sitting for a while and it was running but wouldn't hold idle, you likely need to remove the carburetors and thoroughly clean them. To confirm it's the carburetors you can use a spray bottle to spray a little gas into the carb throats and try cranking. If the engine fires up, your problem is definitely in the carbs; more than likely gummed up. Remember not to use steel objects if you're cleaning the jets because you will enlarge them as a result.

Third break light works but other two dont

What this eliminated here from your list of problems is the brake light switch - if that failed, all 3 brake lites would be ON all the time, or OFF all the time. Since your 3rd lite works, the problem is in wiring from the one lite (that doesnt work) to the other. The wire to both nonfunctional lites will come from one lite to the other (you must remove the plastic trunk panels and trace the wires). The terminal lite will have just 2 wires (its not the problem). The problem will be in the lite that's been daisy-chained to the other light (the one with 4 wires (2 in, 2 out to the other lite)).
Check the suspected light socket and wires for old repairs that have corroded/fallen off (dont laugh - I've seen it), and general corrosion (the usual culprit). Whatever you find, replacing the sockets for the lite bulbs costs just a few dollars at the parts stores --- if you cant solder wires, use crimp unions (or small wire nuts) and E-tape over them to keep out the weather. The pros will solder (the wires) and heat-shrink the connections to the new sockets. Heat shrink is a type of tubing that shrinks under heat of a heat gun and when properly done, keeps out the moisture.

Wat type of tapes

The manual should tell you what tapes you can use in your camcorder, this is just a best guess, so i recommend you show a local expert before you jam bad tapes in it :)

Cant hear songs

It sounds like your headphone/hold cable is faulty. Try plugging it into a sound device with a docking bay. If no sound comes out of there either then it's a faulty logic board.

Turns on but no sound or video

I need more info, does it power on and stay on? if it stays on, its not your battery its something else. did you drop it? i dont see how both sound and video could go out at the same time. If video or sound is not working its probably something microsopic inside and it would be very hard to fix.I suggest just sending it to nintendo they'll fix it (actually they'll just send you a new one) for 60 bucks.
